1 out of 5 eggs This drive is junk! 08/11/2012

This review is from: HP USB 2.0 External CD/DVD Writer Model dvd1270e LightScribe Support

Pros: None

Cons: Does not work with Win7 Home Premium. HP support is useless. There are no drivers on HP's site and Win7 Home Premium is not compatible with this drive. Other reviews on the web seem to bear this out.

Other Thoughts: On a Win7 Home Premium laptop it consistently stalls in the middle of an operation and generates a communication error. On a WinXP desktop the included software would not not install. On both machines the drive did not complete a single write operation or a single lightscribe labeling operation without errors. The only thing this drive cood do reliably is read operations.


Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this based on the good reviews but I unfortunately got a bad one. This one started generating error messages that the files and directories on it where corrupt the first time I tried to use it. It can be formatted and files can be copied to it but they are unreadable and unaccessable after that.
